    Right with the release of the polished skyblock has been made into a grinding game. Yay pumpkins and melons got removed to reduce spam lag. This was a genius idea and truly I no longer have to break the same block about 20 times to get the drop its around 2-3 now. But people have found other massive sources of points. Primarily wood and cactus. I often see sky high cactus farms and I wonder how is this different from what the lag pumpkins caused? The answer it's no different sometimes I sit there and I spam click sell sapling when I have around 8 stacks in my inv. This is no different in any way to the lag created from the spam sell of pumkin. So I ask agian can we please have an option to sell in bulk? It would realy help reduce the amount of lag created when players use shop.



    Ex : say I have 10 players each with 10 stacks of saplings and the all started selling simultaneously, now with the current SB shop model the server would register 6400 clicks in a very short amount of time. However if we had the option to sell in batches of 16 or 32 then we would only have either 400 or 200 registered clicks. Now I'm no expert here but I'm shure that 400 clicks puts less Strian on the server or lag than 6400 clicks

    They reduced the price of cactus and saplings significantly, to the point where it does not really give you profit...

    I agree with your idea though, but I'm not sure if it would reduce the lag, since the same amount of items has to be converted into points.
    Might be wrong, I'm not good with plugins :)

    I agree with @RubenoMe, it doesn't really give that much of a profit now.
    Although this has been suggested before, I like the idea. But it would encourage people more to go point farming, which SkyBlock isn't made for.

    I don't know why selling in bulk has never been added before, same with buying the blocks of minerals I.E. Diamond block for 1800 points. It reduces lag and saves players time.

    Instead of buying stuff one by one, I'll be more efficient and saves time!

    It will reduce the lagg a little bit but not enought to resolve the problem. The lagg is due to other commands like sign clicks.

    I agree with @superxsnap wasn't lag the main reason pumpkins got removed for the shop? Selling in bulk's have been suggested before but I think this will reduce lag and It's great idea. <,3
    PS: removing pumpkins from the shop hasn't really changed dramatically as there are as much lag as there was before. I understand that skyblock isn't just used for farming points but to be honest most people went on skyblock to farm points and buy diamonds/iron to improve their islands.

    And I know most people are going to moan and say "Get points from playing games" I understand that but that's the the primary point I am making.

    I agree with @superxsnap , bulk selling should've been a thing from the beginning, it's better and more convenient for us players.

    If they want you to play games to get points for diamonds then you're getting the diamonds without even playing skyblock. At least with farms you were actually playing skyblock to get your points.

    And again I 100% agree with you guys! Nice point by the way (The skyblock community is going strong and striving for our pumpkins/reducing lag :3)

    Saplings should sell for 4 points, and pumpkin should sell for 1 point in my opinion. Not overpowered, but not too little that there's no point in selling it.

    Well their never gonna actualy add pumpkins back in becuase people could easily build massive farms and get a eff 4 dia axe and blitz through a massive field getting loads of them in short amounts of time. This was reflected when a admin showed us a vid of how much lag was created when 5 people spam sold their pumpkins. So I will say it agian if we had the option to sell 64 pumpkins at a time for 64 points. Then both the server and the player profit. The same can be applied to saplings. Plus the sad thing is there's already bulk selling implemented but only for wood and cactus which is weird. Hopefully in tha future more items can be sold in bulk

    The only point I can find that hasn't been mentioned is why bulk buying/selling hasn't been added yet. I.E. Selling 64 cactus at a time for 6 points, rather than 10 cactus for 1 point, or buying diamond / iron / gold blocks instead of minerals. There was an island that I went to the other day that had a cactus farm over 100 blocks high, so as you could imagine that is still going to cause a lot of lag, and still provide them with a fortune of points. There was a suggestion made a long time ago that I really liked where you could choose the option to buy / sell either 1, 10 or 64 of something at a time. perhaps that could be the solution c:

    Just from a technical point of view, this really has very little with lag. Blocks existing don't cause lag. Seeds do as they are entities.
